Who Needs a TV Recliner?

Best TV Recliners from Walker’s Furniture and Mattress Las Vegas

Why Trust Walker Furniture & Mattress?

TV recliners have consistently been one of the most popular types of home furniture since they first came out in the ‘50s as the perfect way to lounge and watch television. TV recliners are still a comfortable way to enjoy all your media, but there are many more options available than in days of old.

If you’re in the market for a new TV recliner, there are many things you’ll want to consider. There are different types, sizes, upholstery materials, features, and design styles to choose from. You’ll also find varying tech features and different recliner mechanism designs.

The experts at Walker’s Furniture can help pair you with the right TV recliner for you. In the meantime, here are some TV recliner buying tips and the best recliner chair styles from our catalog.

Who Needs a TV Recliner?

There are many different types of people that can benefit from a TV recliner, even if on an occasional basis. TV bingers are the most likely to get a recliner chair, but they aren’t the only ones that can benefit. For example, those who work heavy labor jobs or work on their feet need to be able to elevate their feet and reduce stress on the spine to prevent chronic pain.

When you look at the health benefits of sleeping in a TV recliner below, it’s easy to see why the TV recliner belongs in every home.

Health Conditions Benefited by Sleeping in a Reclining Chair

According to Healthline, there are several health benefits to sleeping in a reclining chair. People with acid reflux can get some sleep by sitting in a reclined position. Back and joint pain is also relieved by sitting in a recliner, particularly if it has massage features.

Sleeping in a reclined position also opens up the airways. This is important for people with sleep apnea, but anyone with a temporary respiratory malady could benefit as well. Pregnant women especially benefit from a rocker recliner that can also serve them well when the baby is born.

Other Things to Consider as You Shop

There are several ways you can classify the types of tv recliners. Here are a few things to consider as you look through the options from Walker’s Furniture in Nevada.

  • Number of positions: 2 positions is standard, but some power recliners have more options. Lift chairs designed to assist someone in rising have multiple positions.
  • Recliner mechanism: Traditionally designed recliners have a manual reclining mechanism worked with a lever on the outside of the chair. Today manual recliners are designed with levers in creative places. Push back recliners are manual but have no lever. Power recliners are becoming the most common.
  • Rocker recliner vs wall huggers: A wall hugging recliner is designed to be placed closer to the wall than the average tv recliner, but still extends the full length desired. Rocker recliners are the more traditional style, and they require at least 5 inches of clearance between the back and the wall to recline properly.
  • Size considerations: Oversized recliners have long been popular, but in today’s modern apartments and smaller starter homes there may not be room for such a large piece of furniture that only seats one person. Consider a swivel rocker recliner instead.
  • Upholstery types: Leather recliners are by far the most popular, but other common types of tv recliners include microfiber, faux leather, and polyester or other synthetic fabrics.

If you are overwhelmed with options, come into our Nevada showroom to meet with experts from Walker’s Furniture and Mattress. We are here to help you find the perfect tv recliner.
